White Bean and Artichoke Tarts

No, this isn’t an April Fools joke, I am actually posting a recipe today. Who knew I had it in me haha. I know I constantly claim that I’ll become a better blogger and post this or that, but hey, I’m human and do the best I can with the limited free time that I...
Quinoa with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Quinoa with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

So I dunno if you guys have picked up on this by now, but I eat fairly healthy 82% of the time and go kinda nuts the other 18% (baking is just too much fun!). Even though that’s a great split, I want to make a conscious effort to eat more healthily in 2014. This...
Grilled Vegetable Sandwich w/ Balsamic & Almonds

Grilled Vegetable Sandwich w/ Balsamic & Almonds

If I was a practical food blogger, I’d follow the rest of the blogosphere and post holiday recipes to attract visitors and “oo”s and “ah”s from all my awesome readers. But nope, I’m ignoring social conventions to write about a grilled vegetable sandwich that screams summer. Thanksgiving is next week, I get it. But it...
Ginger Carrot Soup

Ginger Carrot Soup

Happy first day of fall everyone! The weather has been gorgeous lately…just sunny enough to feel like summer, but with a slight cool breeze to keep you from sweating nonstop throughout the day. It’s awesome. I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible even though I’ve been incredibly busy. I don’t remember if I...
Spinach and Chickpea Soup with Lemon

Spinach and Chickpea Soup with Lemon

I worked from 9 am to 9 pm on Sunday. No matter how much you like your job (I’m still on the fence about mine), working that long always sucks. By the end of the day you feel like your body is running on fumes and your brain stopped running a good 5 hours ago....

Salmon Avocado Pita

  Ugh. So my camera broke. I’m not even kidding. When I try to turn it on, the screen flashes and it makes a ticking noise. Ironically, the ticking increases at the same rate as my temper…but that’s besides the point. I’m seriously NOT happy about breaking yet another electronic device. I’m not even sure...
Bologna, Sauerkraut, & Cheddar Sandwich

Bologna, Sauerkraut, & Cheddar Sandwich

Last weekend my mom was initiated into this random teacher’s organization that’s basically a sorority for grown women. Well, she spent the entire weekend at a hotel in North Jersey, leaving my dad and I unattended. Since I worked most of the day that Saturday, my dad had to fend for himself. When I got...

After my horrible attempt at channeling Don Drapper during the Mad Men premier last Sunday, I begrudgingly came to the realization that instead of suave Don, I relate more to Betty right now. Yay me. Haha. In the later seasons of the show, Betty’s story arch swirls around her struggles with weight loss and ongoing...
Omelette Cups with Ham & Peppers

Omelette Cups with Ham & Peppers

Hopefully everyone is having a great week! :) I love repurposing leftovers. Not reheating, that’s gross. Nope, it’s fun for me to make leftovers into a completely new dish. We had some leftover ham from Easter, so I thought it would be cool to make a classic omelette with ham and cheese. Because I can’t...

Grilled Vegetable Tart with Olives

Puffed pasty – you delicious flaky son of a bitch. That’s right, I’ll say what everyone else is thinking. Mr Puff, you are so freakin’ good. Okay, now that I got that out of my system I can think clearly again. So… Cooking with puffed pastry is such a simple way to make any recipe...
Power Boost Salad

Power Boost Salad

Happy 2013 everyone! I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve! On Monday night, I went to my friend Brittany’s apartment to watch the ball drop. She was one of the first people I met in college and she invited a good group of people over to celebrate. We ate, drank, and laughed until...
Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

Ah, fall…the time of year when I bask in the glory of roasted vegetables as much as I can. Despite the fact that it’s been in the 70s for the last two days, you can really feel the season in the air. It’s crisp and chill with a sense of hustle and bustle everywhere you...
